Coming off a 4-1 loss to No. 24 SMU on Friday, the No. 59 Nevada women’s tennis team picked up a 4-1 win over No. 66 Wichita State on the second day of the Via Christi Collegiate Classic.
Due to weather conditions, the match was relocated from host Wichita State’s outdoor Sheldon Coleman Tennis Complex to indoors at the Genesis Health Club.
Nevada (4-7, 0-1 Western Athletic Conference) opened the match with two wins in doubles to get the doubles point. Senior Caroline Bailly and junior Maria Mizyuk extended their all-time career-high doubles wins to 42 by defeating Anna Egorova and Stephanie Dalmacio 8-6 in the No. 1 doubles position.
In the No. 2 spot, sophomores Florence De Vrye and Lais Ogata picked up their third win together this season defeating Lenore Lazaroiu and Lutfiana Budihart 8-6. Despite picking up the doubles point, Florentina Hanisch and Torrie Browning defeated sophomores Aodhnait Lombard and Caroline Stevens 8-3 in the No. 3 position.
In singles competition, Bailly, who is second in the Wolf Pack’s all-time career singles wins list, picked up her 66th career win in the No. 1 position, defeating Egorova 6-1, 6-1.
Mizyuk picked up her 47th career win in the No. 3 spot, topping Dalmacio 6-2, 6-4. With the win, Mizyuk is one win away from tying Ines Zouabi (1998-2003) for fifth in Nevada’s all-time career singles wins list.
Stevens picked up her fourth win on the season in singles by defeating Hanisch 6-2, 6-3 in the No. 5 position.
Due to time availability of the courts, the matches between Ogata and Browning in the No. 4 position and Lombard and Lazaroiu in the No. 6 spot were unable to finish.
Nevada will conclude the invitational on Sunday against Louisville.
